We have three children attending WCS, our kids adore their teachers. The teachers work with students as individuals not as clones. Everyone in the building is supportive, loving and approachable. They are Christ focused and as a follower of Christ that is important to me. I know that many children come from broken homes and that a lot of the parents who are non-believers resent the Christian focus of the school. So if you read a negative review I would keep that in mind. We know WCS isn't perfect but also know the teachers and administrators in the building love the kids, are talented and love Jesus Christ. I pray that God continues to bless WCS and our family through them.

This is an awful school. Religious agenda is first and academics is second. The teachers set up a barrier to the administration and parents, and hold all the power. If your kid doesn't fall in line with what they want him/her to say and think, then they'll make their school life miserable. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE

I am a Westminster alumni and will always remember my time spent at WCS. It was a very positive, supportive and Christ-centered environment.

Westminster Christian is a school on the rise. The entire staff genuinely loves each student and appreciates their unique gifts and disciplines in love. Vastly improving sports and academics. Great value and terrific leadership. Parent

My son was recently accepted to the school....I was extremely impressed with the attention given to us and the fact that they genuinely appear to 'disciple' my son....We had a very negative experience with a nearby catholic high school and it almost turned me against my religion....I know this was all meant to be.....The other school's loss!!!!

Teachers really seemed to care about my child. My child loves to play basketball and has made good friends.

Westminster's atmosphere is refreshing. They not only want my children to learning their ABCs and 123s, but more importanly, they teach them about God and the promises He has for them. The faculty and staff care about our family as a whole and I highly recommend WCS to everyone I meet!

I have 3 children and all 3 have either attended WCS or is still at WCS. I cannot say enough about how grateful I am for the staff and teachers. They have prepared my child for college and they are doing extremely well and is searving the Lord. I can say without hesitancy that the school is growing and they are headed in the right direction. The leadership of the Board and adminstration has been wonderful to work with.God has really blessed WCS and I look forward in seeing what the future brings to them.

complete waste of $. sub quality academics, classroom sizes, & school leadership. I pulled my kids out in 2006;the new leadership is more interested in being the biggest school than quality education. My public school offers more and the xian education compenent is weak. It is mere window dressing.

This school is amazing! My daughter went to Elgin district U46 for 7 years and we were tired of there lack of concern for children and there issues with money. My daughter is now in high school and I cant say enough about the personal attention she gets on a normal basis. I feel better knowing she is there! The staff is very personal and class sizes are small,But there is plenty of extracurricular activities, such as sports, art, music.Parents are always welcome and are very involved in school activities! As well as centering children on growing in christ! Dont miss this great opportunity! Its worth the money!
